From Prey Chor district, Chy, 21, is the mother of a young child.
She grows crops on rented farmland to generate income for her livelihood. Her husband always assists her in the business. Together, they are able to earn approximately $5 each day to cover their daily expenses.
Chy would like to take out a loan from HKL to pay the rented farmland, on which she will plant potatoes and some types of vegetable crops in a new cycle. This loan will enable her to sustain her farming business. In the future, Chy intends to buy and own a few pieces of farmland herself to increase in her income.
